Sorry if this has been mentioned before (I did search before posting), but there are a few widgets from the other Galaxy S phones that are rather nice, the weather clock in particular. I know there is a Fascinate dump out there, but can I just extract the apk and install it, or is there something else that I need to do. Any help is appreciated.

Well, i pulled the APK's out of the ROM, but I'm not able to install them. I'm really new at this, so forgive me for the ignorance. there are ODEX files that accompany the apks...do i have to do something with those on order to install the widgets?

you'll need to use adb shell once you copy the files to a location on your internal sd card

you'll need to mount system as r/w first so do this, so:

adb shell
su (your device needs to be awake and unlocked so you can verify the SU request)
mount -o remount rw /system
cp /sdcard/xxxx.odex /system/app
cp /sdcard/xxxx.apk /system/app
reboot

the reboot is just for good measure. i've used this technique to get apps onto the phone, but as usual YMMV. If you post up the apk and odex files as a zip i'll give them a shot.

Do you have o remount /system as read only or will the reboot do that?

I had asked about putting the Samsung Touchwiz widgets on if using Launcher Pro. Was told no.

Would this method allow that for them?
